Iraqi Aviation Destroys More than 16 Islamic State Fighters

The command of the military operation in Anbar reported that the Iraqi aviation inflicted a series of attacks on the positions of the Islamic State group in the al-Buis area north of the city of Ramadi, destroying more than 16 militants.

"Aircraft of the Iraqi army were able to fire and cause losses to the IG terrorists in the al-Buis region, while the 16 militants died," the RIA reported "News".

In addition, Iraqi planes managed to knock out an armored personnel carrier and two rocket launchers in the al-Buziyab area near Ramadi.

Last Friday, Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi announced that in the near future, Ramadi would hand over to the control of the Iraqi army. According to the Anbar Provincial Council, the Iraqi military currently controls about 40% of the province’s territory, which the Islamic State’s militants have previously captured.

On Thursday, the Iraqi military entrenched in the eastern suburbs of Ramadi and began to prepare for a large-scale operation to liberate the city.

Islamic State militants seized the Anbar administrative center in June 2014.

        The Iraqi Air Force has also been bombing for a couple of years, and the Russian Aerospace Forces have gouged more terrorists in one month than everyone who has done this before for two years. Efficiency is the key to success!)))

    Well, the Iraqis, even if they really inflict losses on ISIS, even purely symbolic ... hehe compared to the aviation of the Western coalition, which somehow bombed a substation and a couple of bulldozers belonging to civilians.

    Every terrorist killed is already help. Each wrecked armored vehicles - triple help.

    To the campaign, the Americans and the Saudis decided to curtail the ISIS project.
    And now they’re clearing people who haven’t managed to overrun or run away.

    After the Russian strikes, the Iraqi forces intensified very much, launched an offensive on Mosul, began to launch air strikes against terrorists! An interesting compote is obtained!

    There are many questions for the Iraqis in general, they have both the Su-25 and Mi28N with a radar, we bought, and the return is a penny.
